cei (Coating Excellence International) Honored for Packaging Excellence and Technical Innovation

WRIGHTSTOWN, WI--(Marketwired - Mar 5, 2014) -  cei (Coating Excellence International), a market leading flexible packaging and technical products company, has received recognition for Packaging Excellence and Technical Innovation at the 58th annual FPA (Flexible Packaging Association) Annual Welcome Meeting and Achievement Awards Dinner in Scottsdale, Arizona on Tuesday, March 04, 2014.

cei's pinch bottom woven poly bag with slider zipper, manufactured for Natural Life pet food, won a gold in both the Packaging Excellence and Technical Innovation categories. This bag is domestically produced, has superior durability and was the first pinch bottom, slider zipper woven poly bag in the market. The benefits of this bag include additional branding opportunities on the bottom of the bag and superior shelf differentiation. Further, when compared to multiwall bags, it results in up to 75% less damage throughout the distribution channel and the bags are reusable, recyclable, and printed using 100% water based inks.

Accepting this year's awards were Lorna Hay, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and Art Bucci, Sr. Vice President of Flexible Sales. "We are extremely pleased to be honored by our peers at this event. Our goal in developing this product was to respond to the needs of our customers who were seeking the durability of a woven bag with the additional branding opportunities they get with multiwall bags, combined with the convenience of a resealable bag for consumers. It took the collaborative efforts of our entire cross-functional pet food team reacting to this need and taking the product from an innovative idea all the way through to commercialization," stated Lorna Hay.
